Thread subject: :: Lonchaea? Or Silba?

Posted by Sundew on 04-07-2022 04:12

Yesterday I saw a small black fly, probably a Lonchaea, on a Salix shrub by a brook. Iain recently identified from my photos a member of the L. chorea species group (https://diptera.i..._id=106466), could this fly also belong to it? The locality is southwest Germany, 20 km west of Stuttgart.
Support is much appreciated! Sundew
